KIT 2015: Madrid, Spain

Things to Know:

  • Check-in begins at 8:30 AM
  • Lunch is included
  • The focus of this seminar is Madrid Industrial Applications and KEMET


Capacitor Design & Characteristics

For each component type we will discuss the materials used in the design, how differences in construction techniques affect their performance, and important characteristics to consider in your design.

  • Ceramic Capacitors
  • Tantalum Capacitors
  • Polymer Capacitors
  • Film X&Y and Power Film Capacitors
  • AC Line Filer
  • Filters
  • Aluminum Electrolytic Capcaitors

Application Areas

Applying the information learn in the previous sections, discussions focus on how to apply those characteristics to real-world applications.

  • Parasitics in Capacitors
  • Dielectric Comparison
  • Tantalum Capacitors versus Polymer Capacitors and MLCC’s
  • Self Resonance Frequency
  • X2 Suppression Capacitors
  • AC Line Filters
  • Self Heating
  • Film versus Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors
  • End of Life Calculations
  • Filters and Power Factor Correction
